WCCC 2014 GOLF TOURNEY

Let’s talk golf! ICS cooks and judges golf. Golf in Lost Wages, I mean Las Vegas. Date will be Thursday, October 23rd. Time will be close to 10 am for the first group to go off. Plan on flying in or driving into town Wednesday if you want to play. We draw tees out of a hat to pick teams. You might end up with four good sticks or 4 hackers, luck of the draw. Course to be determined. It will NOT be Cascata or Shadow Creek or the Wynn, with rounds costing $500.00. But it will not be some dirt track in the desert either. Vegas golf is moderately expensive, so be prepared to pay @ $100 for the round. It’s a scramble format, mulligans are 5 bucks each, 3 max per player, donated to a charity. Everyone’s drive must be used 3 times. We don’t talk chili, we talk golf or anything else BUT chili. We have a GREAT time and would love to have you join us. So far, I am counting on myself, Matt Levy, Ritchie “Big Stick” Omerza, Linda and Bill Blakey, Kurt Leithner and George Lott as sure things. If you are going to play, please let me know ASAP! The more players I have, the better I can negotiate with the golf courses. My email is golfnchili@aol.com. My cell number is 928-853-1161. Please put it in your phone if you think you might play, once I leave for Vegas I don’t have internet access, no smart phone. Last year we had 3 groups, let get it back to 5 like we had in Reno years ago!

See you in Vegas,

Paul Whitney

WESTERN REGIONAL CHILI COOKOFF Saturday, August 2, 2014

Presented by Del Mar Thoroughbred Club

In just a few days we all get together for a fun-filled day at the races, cooking chili and enjoying being with all of our friends!  Once again the winners of Red & Verde will be invited to the World Open Chili Championship in Vegas Nov 14-16, 2014.

Adding to the festivities of the day is the 2nd annual credit union chili challenge sponsored by XDI with even more entries than last year.  This is a great addition to the overall event attracting an even larger public crowd to taste chili.

We are not in the in-field area this year, so please come to the concert area at the west end of the grandstand and you will be directed further. 

As a reminder, a 40” TV will be awarded to one lucky cook.  A drawing will be held to determine the winner.  One ticket will be given to each red and verde cook plus cooks serving people’s choice only.  Participating ICS cooks bringing in a new cook will receive one extra ticket and so will the new cook.

Please sign up at www.chilicookoff.com - For additional information, please contact Red Brecke, Chairman 858-674-0840 r.brecke@yahoo.com or Mike Stewart, Vice-Chairman 909-796-4122 stewartw@pbworld.com  We hope to see you all there!
